As part of the Bravo Bravura concert series this free concert will convey the opportunity to experience an array of impressive Christmas and holiday-themed music-making from around the world. The holiday season is a great way for Houston Masterworks Chorus to present a simple Christmas concert to feed our souls. We will also feature the winner of the HMC Young Singer Competition, Samantha Pape.
From the Ose Shalom simple message of peace; to Betelehemu, a piece from Nigeria that reflects the African Christian Christmas message in the native melodies and rhythms; to the beautiful Latvian My Song that espouses the power of song.Culminating with an audience sing-along of favorite traditional music: the world’s two most beloved carols, Silent Night and O Holy Night, masterfully combined in this powerful arrangement.
Local mixed-media artist, Sherri Harris, will be painting live during the concert. Her painting will be auctioned off to support Texas Children’s Hospital.
Our mission is to provide free admission for professional quality concerts to the Houston community. Bravura seeks to engage and share experiences with the Houston community in an evening of culture while experiencing comfort, excitement, laughter, and reflection through the beauty of music at All Saints.
All Saints Catholic Church has a history of providing free admission concerts to the Houston community. Concerts at All Saints began with the creation of a Neighborhood Choral Concert Series which later evolved into the All Saints Cultural Arts Series and established a firm foundation as the Bravura Concert Series in 2015. Bravura allows families and friends to enjoy an evening of culture while experiencing comfort, excitement, laughter, and reflection through music. Bravura is implemented as a ministry at All Saints that is powered to provide access to the arts without charging for admission.
